Forgive Tina Seidenfeld if her mind is on other things besides work this week. The Best Buy employee’s son, Ian Seidenfeld, just won a gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Ian, a 20-year-old student at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Business, represented the United States in table tennis. His father, Mitchell Seidenfeld — himself a former Paralympian gold medalist in table tennis — was on the sidelines as the coach of Team USA.
“There are no words to describe the feeling of how proud and excited I am for Ian and what he has done at the age of 20,” said Tina, a senior transportation analyst in parcel operations at Best Buy.
